|My white, smallish kitchen|
I want efficiency.
I want a well-run household, as if I weren't around.
Time management is necessary to fit in all the necessary activities of family life.
An organized home brings harmony to the family.
The mess one makes is the mess one cleans up.

I did not clean the actual drawers and inside the cabinets. I ran out of time and was already feeling sick. I had already moved things around in my cabinets. I do not know if I will be able to catch up on this day. Might have to leave that for another month.
My family couldn't really give me any positive comments about how they feel when I care for the home. My kids have told me in the past that they don't like it when I move things around often. My house is small, and I often have to figure out if things are working in the home, especially since we homeschool.
With my skin condition flaring up, I felt too sick to clean. I had to take the day off. Thursday is not a good day to invite people over because of school and/or work schedules. Perhaps the weekend may yield something better. I will have to see how my health holds up.
I did not clean my oven and microwave. The microwave is not hard to clean. I often have my oldest clean it. That is not a problem. I hope to get to that in the weekend if I feel better.
In April, I had changed out the curtains in the kitchen. Will only have to clean the windows. Don't know if I will get to them today. I will try to catch up on the weekend. I need to continue to rest to recuperated.
2. My husband--I want my husband to come home to a clean home. He works so hard to provide us the house. I should make sure it feels homey.
4. My own growth--I am taking a writing course and blogging. Writing is a big outlet for my emotional health. My writing is getting better. I have grown so much.
5. Our health--exercise and eat better. I want to get healthier. Blogging is helping me document my efforts. Our diet must include better alternatives. Gardening helps.
How about you, my readers? Have you taken on this challenge like I have? Are you deep cleaning your homes? I hope you will try to do the cleaning piecemeal.

May God bless you all with His wisdom and peace.
